tv   CNN Newsroom With Ana Cabrera  CNN  July 15, 2017 5:00pm-6:00pm PDT

5:00 pm
at do we got? okay, watch this. do the thing we talked about. what do we say? it's going to be great. watch. remember what we were just saying? go irish! see that? yes! i'm gonna just go back to doing what i was doing. find your awesome with the xfinity x1 voice remote. . hello. you are in the "cnn newsroom." i'm ana cabrera in new york. we have to revisit the number of people thought to be at that donald trump jr. meeting with a russian lawyer because that number has changed again. now eight people at least confirmed by cnn were in this
5:01 pm
room when the president's son expected to receive information that would hurt the hillary clinton campaign. that was last year in june. and we know one of the people there was a man whose role and history in washington is somewhat of a puzzle. a former officer in the soviet military, now an american citizenship and a lobbyist who pushes issues of interest to the russian government. the issue is on his mind, he tweeted this this afternoon. stock market hit another all-time high yesterday despite the russian hoax story. the president is in new jersey this weekend, so is borris sanchez. tell us what anyone in the administration is saying about these developments today. >> the white house responds to these latest revelations aside from a brief mention of the
5:02 pm
russia hoax in that tweet from the president earlier today. there was no official statement. the president also didn't hold any public events today where reporters could at least shout out questions to him about the specifics of who was in that meeting with his son, donald trump jr. despite all of that we are hearing privately from sources within the white house that they are frustrated, quote, it's not a good thing that donald trump jr.'s story has changed so many times. if you go back, you remember at one point trump administration officials were tells us there was no contact with anyone russians at all during the campaign. obviously that has changed quite a bit since then. i should tell you though, one of donald trump's attorneys, jay sekulow was on cnn last night with anderson cooper, and he maintains the president knew nothing about this meeting. he went on to say there was no criminal act that took place during this meeting, there was no chargeable offense that could come of a meeting with donald
5:03 pm
trump jr. in which he was trying to gain harmful information about hillary clinton from the russian government. here's more of what he said. >> at the end of the day, this is interesting, and i understand why you're covering it, but the fact is no legal violation for the meeting. the meeting itself is not a violation of the law. >> there are several legal experts that have told cnn that it's not that cut and dry. some of them have said a creative prosecutor could look at campaign finance law and find a way to place a charge, perhaps on donald trump jr. or paul manafort or jared kushner who were also in that meeting. whether that happens, we have yet to see. >> borris sanchez reporting from new jersey for us. thank you. i want to bring in professor at princeton university, cnn contributor and moscow bureau chief, jill debtorty, and
5:04 pm
political kmert and former special snoint george w. bush, scott jennings. the president told the american people they had no contact, no contacts with russia. now we're getting this drip, drip, drip. what do you make of this in terms of the white house's credibility at this point? >> it undermines the credibility. it's a story that keeps eating away at the contribute of the president and many of his closest advisers. this more dramatic than any other story. here you have continued news from the white house, there are no contacts, there are no contacts, and then we see it, we visually see there are contacts. and even since that news, the credibility keeps weakening because everything we hear turns out to be a little different than what actually happened. if so on if there's nothing to hide, they shouldn't hide things, and that week uns him
5:05 pm
politically. >> jared kushner's attorneys have been strategizing since mid june how to publicly disclose these e-mails as they were preparing for his upcoming. the you worked in the george w. bush administration in the white house. is it reasonable to believe president trump would have only learned about this meeting last weekend? >> it's very reasonable to believe that because it is imperative in certain instances particularly when you have investigations going on to keep the president from knowing about things. the president wasn't at this meeting. he didn't have knowledge of it whit occurred. so it would be in his best interest and i'm sure his lawyers have advised him of this. the way forward here for donald trump jr. and for mr. kushner is to testify publicly. stop answering questions about these things on a daily basis because as the historian said, the details are changing. go to the senate intelligence
5:06 pm
committee, go under oath, tell your story in full under oath and answer all the questions. that would be a much better strategy at this point than engaging on this on a day-to-day basis. >> if this were the bush white house, would jared kushner still be working there? >> this is a position without analog. he's a relative of the president. we didn't have something like that in the bush white house. he serves at the pleasure of the president. when the president doesn't want you there, you're not there. right now jared kushner has a big portfolio that president trump has girch him to work on. and i see that president trump has confidence in him and as long as that's the case, he'll still be in the white house. >> poournt has denied over and over interfering in the election. is the discovery of this meeting what was promised to donald trump jr. for this meeting, is that likely to worry the
5:07 pm
kremlin? >> you know there's very little at this point, anna coverage of the specifics of that meeting. it's out there in the russian media, but basically, i was looking this afternoon, they are now using the word "nothing burger" translates as [ speaking foreign language ] aburg with nothi-- a burger wit. there's another word that was used back in the soviet days, what aboutism. the way the russians controlled media are covering it is saying, yes, maybe there was a little bit of collusion, interference. but what about when the united states interfered in russian elections and they go back even the soviet days, but certainly to 1994, and borris yeltsin.
5:08 pm
it's become very murky, but i can definitely tell you there's not a lot of coverage of this issue. >> i can't believe they're using the term nothing burger because that sounds like what we're hearing coming from the president's supporters here. they're calling it using that nothing burger term as well. the white house said despite this meeting that if it happened, it happened, okay. there's no there, there. i want to play you what governor of new jersey said about possible collusion. >> can you definitively say i am 100% sure the president and his campaign did not engage in a criminal conspiracy with a foreign intelligence apparatus? >> no, i cannot. i want to get to the bottom of it. >> julian, we are starting to see a shift amongst republicans who are not necessarily defending the president and his
5:09 pm
team. is this the story that changes everything? >> this could be really important. a big part of the story so far is if you have a republican congress that has not been particularly eager to go after a republican president. but once this story brokers we heard a few members of congress, including congressman lance be more vocal in raising the questions, if notmation accusations. you see more conservative immediate figures in several outlaws, including fox news openly also criticize the president. so there are some cracks. we don't know how far this will go. ultimately this is as much a political investigation as a legal one because congress has to handle the matter, but these kinds of statements this works kind of unrest among conservatives can certainly hurt the administration. >> how would you expect the white house's responding to all of this, scott, because today, silence. >> we withere's a couple differ
5:10 pm
response channels here. as it relates to donald trump jr., i was concerned that white house staffers may have been involved in crafting his response. that's unfortunate off of them because they may not have an in that meeting but now they're in the loop of the special counsel. if i were the president, i would order internally at the white house no white house staff can work on any responses for anyone other than the office of the president, and i would have ask my chief of staff, reince priebus to enforce that. you don't want to put your staff in harm's way. >> earlier this week president trump told reporters who were aboard air force one he would invited putin to the white house, not right now, it's not the right time. your thoughts? >> i am not somebody who
5:11 pm
believes that the russians are our friends. i do believe the intelligence agencies when they say that the russians tried to medal in the election, i don't necessarily believe the trump campaign had anything to do with it. but that's what the investigations are for. i think the president right now could ask congress to send him the russia sanctions bill posthaste. we're going to take some action. i actually think there's definitive taksz president could take that would give the country confidence that he cease the russians for who they are. >> we heard from some of the russian government officials late this week that they are preparing some kind of a response if those compounds that were taken away following the election and the meddling as a result of the obama administration handled that, if that doesn't return to them soon they're going to retaliate in some way.
5:12 pm
what would that look like? >> remember at the end of obama, he kicked out 35 russian diplomats who were believed to be intelligence agents, send them back to russia, and took over two compounds that the russians owned in maryland and new york. and the russians had been very angry about that that for months now. they have said if this is not resolved, and i think initially they thought under trump it would probably be resolved, but there's no sign at this point that that is going to happen. so they're really playing hard ball and they're saying if we don't get those back we're going to kick out the number they said is about 30 american diplomats from moscow. retaliation of some type. there is a something the american embassy owns, controls outside of moscow, and that's
5:13 pm
what they would probably go after. they might go, we believe, after the residents of the american glarjs it would be a very strong sign they've given up any hope that this is going to happen, and i have to say, there's a lot of kind of realism creeping in now that their hopes that the relationship would improve under donald trump are coming to nothing at this point. it's worse than ever. >> jill doherty, thanks to all of you. coming up live in the "cnn newsroom," watching conservative news outlaws might lead you to believe the meeting between donald trump jr. and a russian lawyer is a democratic plot to entrap the trump campaign, but it wasn't. one fox news host called it for what it is. how conservative media is handling the russia investigation now. plus, word tonight fired fbi director jim comey is writing a book. a look at what we can expect

the white house response turnover bombshell e-mails are giving criticism from journalists facilitated with conservative media outlaws. shepherd smith releasing this, watch. >> why is it lie after lie after lie? if you're clean, come out clean. my grandmother used to say what a tangled web we waeave when we practice to deceive. one day they're going to realize we're not making it up and look around and go, where are we and why are we getting told all these lies? >> let's talk it over with our brian stelter. president trump often praises
5:19 pm
fox news and is watching "fox and friends." what do you think it means for the white house when you have people on fox news like shep smith and conservative minds criticizing the president and his family how they handled this latest don junior meeting. >> i think shep smith is the exception to the rule. shep smith and chris wallace, there are a number of news anchors and kmerts in the conservative media universe who have expressed real concern about the misleading statements and it is falsehoods that have come out of the white house. for the most part, most of the trump friendly hosts on cable television have stayed firmly behind the president and his family, so firmly that it can be comical at times saying this could be a plot set up by the democrats. how effective would that have been. we've seen a lot of different conspiratorial theories
5:20 pm
presented by conservative media hosts, explanation for don junior's shifting statements. that moment from shep smith was notable because he was breaking with that conservative media narrative and trying to call it out for viewers and asking what a lot of journalists are trying to ask, why are there so many misleading statements. >> are you seeing a difference in how these different right wing blogs or conservative media outlets are handling this meeting with don junior? >> there's been a number of theories that cast blame on others and cast don junior as the victim. i was e-mailing with a news director in iowa who said, look, the conservatives here are ticked off and angry at the media. i noticed breitbart picked up his comments and wrote a whole
5:21 pm
story b. anything that supports this narrative that this is about the media, a fake news favorite, that's certainly popular. we're seeing that all over conservative news sietsz. that's important to recognize because it shows up in the polling. we're going to see another poll from "the washington post" that will show dramatic partisan divides in how this russia issue is viewed, whether it's a real issue or a hoax as the president says depends so much on what media you're consuming. >> his narrative, calling ate hoax a witch-hunt, it's still resenting even after his latest shoe that dropped. we're learning fired fbi director james comey just got a book deal? >> yes. he's out there selling auto book according to "the new york times" and just confirmed by cnn. he's going out pitching the book and he's probably going to have a dial in the next few days. this is going to get interest from all the big accomplishing houses. you think about james comey and
5:22 pm
the story he may be able to tell according to the "times" is not just going to be a tell-all. it's going to a bigger book about his entire life's work, his career, and the big moments he's faced decisions in his career. al it takes is a few chapters about what happened with president trump to get accomplishing houses very interested. it's sort of a no-brainer move by him, but up until now we haven't heard anything about a book detail. >> brian stelter, thanks. his show is on 11:00 a.m. here on a cnn. a controversial police should get has left a louisiana community regal. you're live in the "cnn newsroom." doctors trust. nexium 24hr is the number one choice of doctors and pharmacists for their own frequent heartburn. and all day, all night protection. when it comes to heartburn, trust nexium 24hr.

a man shot and killed by a sheriff's deputy was laid to
5:27 pm
rest today, litigates circumstances that led up to this shooting, this was on july 6th, are still far from settled. this much is known a deputy stopped an african-american man and his girlfriend who were riding an atv in cajun country, a rural area, and at some point a struggle broke out. the deputy shot and killed the man. from there the deputy's account conflicts in a big way with the girlfriend's version. kayleigh? >> i spent time this past week in louisiana. it's a one stoplight town surrounded by rice fields, gravel roads, the only way to navigate between them. the texture of this story and community is complex. as he was laid to rest today, so many questions remain unanswered. it was in the early morning hours of july 6th that he and his girlfriend were riding a four wheeler down one of the gravel roads frog hunting, not an unusual activity in this part of louisiana.
5:28 pm
they encountered sheriff deputy holden holden. brown says it was the deputy who started the fight with her boyfriend. nevertheless, gillry ended up on the ground with the deputy attempt to go arrest him, that's when brown got involved. she jumped on his back and the deputy says she then tried to grab his gun. the arrest warrant affidavit says brown told authorities she, quote, approached him from behind, began to choke and bite him. but brown's attorney said his client never said that. his authorities are misrepresenting his clients version of events he says. quincy brown is charged with attempted first-degree murder of the officer and mr. gillry was laid to rest today. a lot of questions remain, but one big key here could be video. louisiana state police are vaefgt this case and say they are reviewing dash cam video

when heartburn hits fight back fast with new tums chewy bites. fast relief in every bite. crunchy outside. chewy inside. tum tum tum tum new tums chewy bites. i own my own company. i had some severe fatigue, some funny rashes. finally, listening to my wife, went to a doctor. and i became diagnosed with hodgkin's lymphoma ...that diagnosis was tough. i had to put my trust in somebody. when i first met steve, we recommended chemotherapy, and then we did high dose therapy and then autologous stem cell transplant. unfortunately, he went on to have progressive disease i thought that he would be a good candidate for immune therapy. it's an intravenous medicine that is going to make his immune system evade the tumor. with chemotherapy, i felt rough, fatigue, nauseous. and with immune therapy we've had such a positive result. i'm back to working hard.
5:32 pm
i've honestly never felt this great. i believe the future of immunotherapy at ctca is very bright. the evolution of cancer care is here. learn more at cancercenter.com appointments available now. and when youod sugar is a replace one meal... choices. ...or snack a day with glucerna... ...made with carbsteady... ...to help minimize blood sugar spikes... ...you can really feel it. now with 30% less carbs and sugars. glucerna. i hafor my belly painking overand constipation.ucts i've had it up to here! it's been month after month of fiber. weeks taking probiotics! days and nights of laxatives, only to have my symptoms return. (vo) if you've had enough, tell your doctor what you've tried and how long you've been at it. linzess works differently from laxatives. linzess treats adults with ibs with constipation or chronic constipation. it can help relieve your belly pain, and lets you have more frequent and complete bowel movements that are easier to pass. do not give linzess to children less than six,
5:33 pm
and it should not be given to children six to less than 18. it may harm them. don't take linzess if you have a bowel blockage. get immediate help if you develop unusual or severe stomach pain, especially with bloody or black stools. the most common side effect is diarrhea, sometimes severe. if it's severe, stop taking linzess and call your doctor right away. other side effects include gas, stomach-area pain, and swelling. talk to your doctor about managing your symptoms proactively with linzess. dequincy. is it fair to label certain behavior as political bigotry? a cnn.com opinion wire end up an editorial this weekend. i want to talk it over with dean and former lieutenant governor of south carolina, andre bower. this is a narrative that has dogged president trump since early in his campaign and before
5:34 pm
that back to when he said president obama wasn't born here in the united states. i'm wondering what do you want to see? is there something specifically that you want to see out of this administration to help calm that angst that clearly is personal you to and others? >> what i wrote about was actually protest by self-professed trump supporters who were labeled as involved in hate groups, white supremacist groups, not neoconfederate groups. i don't think they want to be politically correct. for president trump, go meet with the communities you demonize, the mexican community, with women, people used mocked, apologize to our communities, speak to us varks conversation and let us be a part of your administration on a certain level. i said that in december during the transition time. it's never happened. i don't expect him to apologize
5:35 pm
to muslim for saying muslims hate us. i don't think anything's going to change with president trump, and unfortunately the world we live in now, you see a spike in anti-muslim hate, ant. no place for anti-semitism in this country. if you were my supporters, i don't want your help at all and that would send a great message. >> you talked about a place in tennessee that was vandalized this week, the moscow, and there was bacon hung on a door. you do have these examples, andre to what dean is speaking of. dean, sticking with you, you talk about these protests you wrote about, "washington post" says last year there were only five anti-demonstrators that
5:36 pm
showed up and they were greeted by peace protesters. >> last year there was about five. i was in contact with the community spokespeople up in islamberg before the show. this year seven motorcycles showed up. it's growing, and they attribute it to donald trump and his demonization to muslims being part of this campaign. these groups come out, groups we've never heard of before who are all self-professed trump supporters. they identity as trump supporters, that's why his words maybe can have an impact with them. >> andre, as a trump supporter yourself, as a republican, does it bother you that dean and others feel this way? >> sure it does. i come from right down the road where one of my fellow senators was killed by someone that was filled with hate just down the street from my house. the fact these folks say they're
5:37 pm
affiliated with donald trump is unfair to donald trump. we've seen donald trump go into muslim countries and say i want to work with you to eliminate terrorism, which victimizes them in those countries. he was very well received i would say in in those countries like saudi arabia. i don't think you've seen anything but positive outreach from donald trump. of course, it's always great formative to do all he can to walk away from that and say we believe in free speech but not hate speech. >> this is a man who proposed a muslim ban. >> i interpret that as public safety, the same countries that our former president obama said are countries that need to be on a watch list. we have to have checks and balances to make sure the safety of the american pick up is at the top of the agenda. >> what could help the
5:38 pm
situation? >> he said america first. not american muslim leaders here. that's his policy. come out. i'm not sure he'll meet with us. this is the first president not to have a ramadan event at the white house. that was deliberate, specific action not to have a ramadan event. every president through the 1990s on, he's the first one. that sends a message to us that we're not part of the fabric of this nation, that we don't belong, that we're not american because of our faith. no one should file lieel like t. we should all feel included. >> is he doing enough? >> from his perspective, probably not, from my perspective, i think he is. i haven't had an outcry of a lot of people, but, again, this is not a good thing for america to have a group of folks go -- >> dean uses the words trump supporting bigots. do you think dean gets it wrong
5:39 pm
when he characterizes the sentiment among trump supporters? >> i think it's how dean feels, not the vast majority. i'm trying to be as fair as i can. i don't think most trump supporters feel that way. i've never run into one that that way. to see him branded that way, it bothers me. not only because he's my president but that there's a perception that people think that way. >> you think maybe he says muslims hate us? the ban, a totally shutdown on muslims was the most stung thing i heard saying an entire faith should not be allowed into this country. that message that sends to the foal americans is we are at risk, we are not even american and we can kill you. that's a stunning, scary comment and donald trump has done anything to make up for that
5:40 pm
comment, nothing to reach out to our community. plus the latino community and women who was demonized. we're not alone. we're part of this stew of history of hate of donald trump. i'm telling you, i'm not the only one. many communities feel that. you don't. >> does it give you pause to think, hey, we're having a productive discussion, we're getting somewhere here? >> andre's a nice guy. >> thank you. >> he's never trafficked in any of that stuff. i would like the president of the united states, the man in the oval office to say the say things and reach out to the communities. the idea he got sworn in and all these communities woke up and it's a new day and he shamed
5:41 pm
victims of sexual assault calling them liars at a rally. his demonization of muslims and latinos. you think we're going to forget that because he puts his hand on the bible and gets sworn in as the presidency? to double down with steve bannon who gave platform to hate on breitbart. there's so much he can do as president. >> we got to go. i owe you another question and more time next time. >> thank you. >> thank you both for coming on. and i appreciate the thoughtful discussion. people with different opinions can have these discussions and that's important. during pump's visit to france, him and president macron seemed to have a bugged friendship. was it chemistry between two men or sheer diplomacy from mr. macron? randi kaye has more. >> reporter: at the bastille day parade, trump was the guest of
5:42 pm
honor. marching band, jet flyovers, an american flag rolled out before him. earlier the french president accompanied mr. trump on a tour of napoleon's private tomb and arranged a dinner where they dined on potato souffle and truffle sauce. it's the pomp and circumstance showered upon all presidents, and all part of a larger plan it seems to woo the leader of the free world. >> thank you for the tour of some of the most incredible buildings anywhere in the world. that was very, very beautiful thing to see. >> no question donald trump enjoys being the center of attention. his when president trump arrived in saudi arabia in may for his first foreign trip, he was
5:43 pm
treated to a sword dance, his image even projected on the wall of his hotel where he walked a red carpet. he left with a gold chain necklace from the kingdom. >> words do not do justice to the grandeur of this remarkable place, and the incredible hospitality you have shown us from the moment we arrived. >> poland did its the best curry favor with trump as well, bussing in a crowd of people to cheer in support of president trump as he delivered his foreign policy speech. >> it's a majestic nation, a spectacular police station, some of the most beautiful sites. >> perhaps at the top of the the japanese prime minister the best way to ingratiate thoims president trump, even before inauguration day, shinzo abe showed up at trump tower with a driver that was plated in gold. ever since his relationship with trump has been on solid ground.
5:44 pm
while angela merkel was caught striking a cool stance, she is showering him with flattery in other ways. despite the fact he's a newcomer to diplomacy. if world leaders cannot get the president himself, they'll work relations with his family. israel prime minister benjamin netanyahu played up jared kushner. trudeau trudeau took ivanka trump to a broadway show. dealing with a president who demands loyalty, all that flattery may pay off. after france's macron went out of his way to woo him, president trump is already patting macron on the back u saying publicly the two men have a good friendship. randi kaye, cnn, new york. coming up, police officers
